I will be happy to help you. I will need to know if you are wanting to be at the auction when it goes or if you want to wait til the property is bought back by the bank and is put in the hands of a realtor for resale? You can also watch the properties coming onto the market just like an agent by going to the link below. I will look forward to speaking with you soon about the process you would like to use.

Your Realtor will have a list of previously used vendors. Great vendors are hard to come by......they are kept a secret for personal customers only. Your Realtor will have some as well.

Since needs are a matter of personal preferences, if unfamiliar with the area, why not revisit more than once and see all firsthand, then determine if your comfort level can be reached; keep in mind opinions are oftentimes subjective, what may be good for one, may not necessaily be the case for another.... ... more

Lease option a good idea nowadays? It depends most of all on the market. I happen to think it's a fabulous idea right now if you are a local resident in a resort, vacation or tourist-driven region. In many of these second and investment home markets... there's a glut of investor/owners who speculated at the top of the market. Many of these owners might be happier finding long-term renter or leasing, as an alternative to short-selling or foreclosure, until the market comes back. And if you're a younger buyer just starting out, renting to own is a great way to get your foot in the door. Also for retirees, renting a while in this uncertain economy can give a measure of comfort until things settle before committing precious retirement assets into the property. ... more

At present, is the best time to buy. Interest rates and prices are at there lowest level in decades.

If foreclosure there would not be any liens on the property NO REASON to worry about those myth(s) NO TITLE company can transfer title in your name unless any outstanding balances are paid.

Foreclosures if you have time to wait takes approx. 60 days receive a response from lender and approx. 45 days to close NOT all sales offers will be accepted by lender prep yourself to submit many offers.

Good Morning Steve-
Heritage Palms is one of the golf course communities that I specialize in. GREAT community! The key question is whether this foreclosure has been listed by the bank yet? Most banks will not accept an offer on a property until they have it listed in the mls for sale. On a few occasions, being a Broker, I have been able to submit an offer directly to the bank..What is the property address & I can tell you more - what model - Abbey, location etc...! I can also look up the bank information also..With foreclosures now you have to make sure you can get title insurance on the property if it can be sold & its not "frozen" as a lot of foreclosures are currently... call me or email me & I'll be glad to let you know what I find out!
